I’ve said in other reviews of that you can tell a lot about a barbecue place by their brisket. It’s the most difficult meat to get right, so if it’s good, chances are everything else will be too. In this case, the brisket was okay; not terrible, but not great either. It was well presented and a decent portion for the money, but it was pretty dry. A decent selection of in-house made sauces helped a bit, and the flavour was there, but would have been much better if the meat was moist. The sides chosen from a good sized list of options were good, and the service was very good as well. It’s not like I wouldn’t eat here again, or even try the brisket again - perhaps what I was served was from a leaner part of the point, and next time might get a juicier portion from the flat.

According to the reviews this place can be “hit or miss”, well they missed when we visited. First off, there was only one other table of customers there at 7 pm on a Friday night. That should have been our first clue to leave. The waitress seemed tired and not very welcoming, but that could be overlooked if the food was great. My first turn off was the menu. Firstly, the prices had been changed on every single item with little stickers and hand written prices. Secondly, we were shocked at the prices. We were in a rather dingy pub, not a fine dining restaurant! The Entrees were all well over $20, and even the appys were pricey! I opted for the smaller portion of ribs with a side Caesar salad for $11.99. I got 4 very tiny, very dry tasteless ribs and a small dish of not that tasty Caesar salad for my $11.99. Hubby got the brisket dip for $16.99. It was not a very generous sandwich but he said it was “ok”, but not something he would go back for. Anyway, between the service and the food, we both said we wouldn’t return. Disappointing.

We were ever so graciously allowed to stay longer to watch Winnipeg play Nashville. This is a great place to come. And of course the food was amazing. It was a great time!!
